Sharing Resources and Accelerating Research to Cure Diabetes
At the DRI, we’re committed to curing diabetes in the fastest, safest, most efficient way possible. That’s why scientific collaboration has long been at the core of our philosophy. One key to accelerating research is to collaborate – not compete – with fellow scientists. And we’re doing just that all over the world.
We’ve established the Diabetes Research Institute Federation, a global alliance of researchers from top medical centers who are focused on one goal: to cure diabetes.
Through these worldwide partnerships, we can bring promising findings to patients more quickly than ever before – and overcome barriers: financial, political, legal, regulatory -- that vary by country and prevent real progress toward a cure.
Working closely with these scientific colleagues, researchers at the DRI in Miami investigate more strategies, share more ideas, and accomplish more success because of this network.
“By expanding our collaborative interactions, we can achieve our common goal in less time and make the best use of collective resources,” said Camillo Ricordi, M.D., the DRI’s scientific director and founder of the DRI Federation and Cure Alliance.
The DRI Federation now has several dozen partners and continues to grow.
